This restaurant has been around for a long time and we have often enjoyed meals at their Umhlanga and Glenwood restaurants. We have never had anything but a good meal ever.

Been here a couple of times. Tried different meals, veg and non veg. Loved the Mediterranean veg mezze and the aubergine parmigiana. Prawns were excellent! Service was good. Convenient location with lots of street and off street parking.
